Stop The Plastic Tide Exhibition at Walberswick
Saturday 21 July until Sunday 2 September free entry
An alarming 91 per cent of plastic ever created has not been recycled, meaning it will haunt our natural environment for over 400 years until it biodegrades. In doing so, micro-plastics enter our food chain and if current trends continue, plastic will outweigh fish in our oceans by 2050. To raise awareness and promote change Seaview Gallery in Walberswick is bringing together eight acclaimed coastal artists from East Anglia in a special fundraising exhibition for marine conservation.
Alongside works for sale by James Dodds, Laurence Edwards, Kate Giles, Tim Fargher, Andrew Pringle, Helen Napper, Fiona Petheram and Karen Downing, visitors are invited to silently bid on selected artworks kindly donated by a number of the artists. Proceeds from the auction and sales from plastic free merchandising, including bespoke tote bags and reusable beeswax cling film, will be donated to The Marine Conservation Society, the UK’s leading charity for the protection of our seas, shores and wildlife. Seaview Gallery Walberswick, The Street, Walberswick, Southwold, IP18 6UB Opening Hours: Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and August Bank Holiday Monday 10 am – 5 pm.
